The Mondays: I LOVE the NFL!

It's great to have the Mondays back. I missed football!

New York Jets 24 - Houston Texans 7- It was an excellent rookie debut for Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez. He completed 18-of-31 passes for 272 yards and one touchdown. Thomas Jones had a good day as well, rushing for 100 yards. On the other side, it was a bad day for Texans running back Steve Slaton. He rushed for only 17 yards on nine carries.

New Orleans Saints 45 - Detroit Lions 27- The losing streak for the Lions continues. Matthew Stafford didn't have the kind of day that Mark Sanchez had. Stafford threw three interceptions against the Saints. Meanwhile, Drew Brees threw six touchdown passes. It was a good day for him.

Baltimore Ravens 38 - Kansas City Chiefs 24- Joe Flacco had a good game on Sunday. He passed for 307 yards on Sunday and three touchdowns. For KC, Brodie Croyle had a good game. He kept the Chiefs in it. This game was a lot closer than the score showed. It will be interesting to see Matt Cassel get in the line up for the Chiefs. As for the Ravens, they played great. If Flacco's performance on Sunday is any indication of his career, he should do a fine job this season.

San Francisco 49ers 20 - Arizona Cardinals 16- Only the 49ers could win a game with Frank Gore rushing the football 22 times for 30 yards. And only the Cardinals could lose even if Kurt Warner had a great passing day.

Dallas Cowboys 34 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 21- ROMO ALERT: Our namesake passed for 353 yards and three touchdown passes. As for the Bucs, it's great to see Cadillac Williams playing again. We hope he stays healthy and has a terrific season.

SUNDAY NIGHT RECAP: Green Bay 21 - Chicago Bears 15- So Aaron Rodgers...He's clutch. Yes, even I (a Bears fan) was impressed. Jay Cutler didn't have the best game, but it's the beginning the season. The Packers always give the Bears a rough time, and vice versa. It's a rivalry, plain and simple.

Monday Night Picks: New England over Buffalo and San Diego over Oakland.

Enjoy your Monday!
